Golden Bat and Fire-Breathing Dragon Chill in Storage at MIA

In workshops at Miami Bridge in Homestead, we’ve been singing a song set to the tune of Super Blue’s 2013 carnival hit, “Fantastic Friday.” Our version is a homage to these two giant costumes made by artists at Homestead last year, with designer Brian Wong Won: the Golden Bat and Fire-Breathing Dragon. They’re retired for now, relaxing in the storage room of the Miami International Airport, where they flew over the South Terminal Gallery for a few months in 2013. We’re hoping sometime the wonderful director of fine arts, Yolanda Sanchez, will find a place for them to fly again. For now, we’re happy for this photo from MIA, that lets us know they’re in good spirits.
